Redefine the future
This year, the Big Bang Digital is expanding its horizons to look at how we can build a brighter and greener future using science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) – a future that will be in the hands of the brilliant young people who are studying the subjects right now.
Aimed at 11 to 14 year olds, the 3-day event (Weds 23 June to Fri 25 June) will be packed full of inspiring and interactive sessions, opening young people's eyes to future developments they could be part of.
Big Bang Digital could be the spark for young people to see how the very subjects they're studying can lead to some of the most interesting, exciting and fulfilling careers.
